1995, the world as we knew it changed. mexico crashed, and something very strange happened. within three days markets in hong kong, india, hungary, poland crashed. we weren't expecting this, and we most certainly did not understand what mechanism was in place that was causing world emerging markets to crash just because mexico crashed. and, you know, when economists can't understand something, we give it a special name. we call it an anomaly. [laughter] when asia crashed a few years later in '97, we truly understood that something was different because it dragged down every emerging market in the world, and hence since this nasty animal, this contagion in the system, what we call fear now, if one emerging market gets hit, money was being pulled out of every single emerging market blindly regardless of the reasons of the initial crash. and at this juncture most developed countries and rich countries and markets were relatively safe from this contagion. this was short lived. as you all well know, late 2007 we crashed, and we infected the entire world. this was a domestic crash beginn
